Doom metal band Patriarchs in Black have released a new track, “A Few Good Men,” the third single from their highly anticipated third album, “Visioning.” The album is set for an international release on July 19th via Metalville Records.

Guitarist Dan Lorenzo shared insights about the song, stating, “I wrote ‘A Few Good Men’ with Kelly Abe. It’s the quickest song on the album. Kelly wrote the lyrics.” Kelly Abe elaborated on the song’s theme: “‘A Few Good Men’ is a homage to the small group of true brothers we have in our lives, who are there for the long haul at times that matter most. It’s a commentary on fair-weather friends, acknowledging that camaraderie is easy when times are good, but over time, you come to realize that only true brothers show up when it’s inconvenient. ‘Camaraderie is fodder on a proper day, for all the friends who spring to leave dismay’ – catch the double in that. TIME DON’T LIE.”

Patriarchs in Black was formed at the end of 2021 by former Type O Negative/Danzig drummer Johnny Kelly and guitarist/riff writer Dan Lorenzo (Hades, ex-Non-Fiction). The project features notable guests on vocals and bass, including Karl Agell (COC Blind/Lie Heavy), Jimmy Gnecco, Dewey Bragg (Kill Devil Hill/Bill Ward), among others. Their debut single, “Demon of Regret,” was released in January 2022, followed by their first album, “Reach For The Scars,” on July 1st, 2022. Their second album, “My Veneration,” was released on October 6th, 2023, featuring multiple guest vocalists and bassists.

For their forthcoming third studio album, “Visioning,” Dan Lorenzo has written 12 new songs. Alongside drummer Johnny Kelly, the album features an impressive lineup of singers and bass players, including Dave Neabore (Dog Eat Dog), Karl Agell (Corrosion of Conformity), Eric Morgan (A Pale Horse Named Death), Mark Sunshine (Unida), Jason McMaster (Watchtower), Kyle Thomas (Exhorder), and many more.

The tracks on “Visioning” blend elements of classic doom metal with modern sounds and include excursions into hardcore/crossover. The album was mixed and mastered at JROD Productions by Jon Cioicari.

“It’s SO fun and not putting too much pressure on singers to come up with one or two amazing lyrics and melodies a year. I write a LOT of riffs/music. Our third album came together very easily. FUN FUN FUN,” said Dan Lorenzo.
